  2. The author is not competent in signalling and communications. He does not mention that flashlights can be communication tools if they have a momentary on button. Minimag and many other popular lights do not have this. (You can learn morse code in 1 day.)

    His suggestions about improvised sun-reflecting signals are worthless, as his reference to a “sighting hole” in signal mirrors. He does not understand how such things work. You can improvise a POTENT sun reflector signal that can be accurately aimed if you have a large piece of plain glass and a small mirror with an “X” aperture scraped from the silvering. Talk of using aluminum foil this way is nonsense. With this simple knowledge you might not have to practice cannibalism when your plane crashes in the Andes.

    His suggestions about pressing aluminum foil into a water-container for disinfection by boiling are worthless; the foil will have holes in it and will leak.

    His use of a bow to support a wire saw is not as good as could be. It is easy to make a much better holder with a heavy forked stick, a smaller end stick that pivots like a lever, and some parachute cord that can be twisted to tighten the lever.

    Rely on this book, and you probably won’t survive. There are other, much better books. John Build the Perfect Survival KitMcCann is no MacGyver.

    The only use of this book is to make me aware of a number of commercial products that I intend to try out.

  4. “HOW TO SURVIVE ANYWHERE” is an excellent survey of survival tools, materials, techniques and strategies covering widely diverse circumstances. As a lecturer on “Post Crash Wilderness Survival” for the FAA, I find this book a valuable resource including information and techniques previously unknown to me. For anyone making a study of the subject of survival, this is a valuable addition to their library.
